convenient for the obama administration. what do you say? >> stuart, stuart, i'm going to tell you something. one of-- let's get serious here. our status stigses in washington d.c., i'm not saying they can't play a little bit at the margins, but we've had a declining unemployment rate and a growing economy for almost three years now and if people don't believe the-- i think one of the reasons people have a problem believing the numbers, they bet so heavily on really bad economy, i think. stuart: brian, wait, wait. i know what you've been saying, i know what you've been saying. >> the unemployment rate to be below #-- >> the reason why the unemployment rate has come down is because god knows how many millions of people have dropped out of the work force and now, suddenly, oh, how conveniently, in the month of september, 873,000 of them come right back in and say, i got a job. what's with that? >> well, okay, there's two surveys, i mean, if you really want to get in the weeds. stuart: i do. >> the household survey where we knock on people's doors and ask them, are you working or are you not. i
's report from the obama administration's perspective, roger altman, chairman of evercore partner, now a supporter of the obama campaign joining us from seattle. great to see you. first of all the jobs number and the view from wall street of this, this economy kind of bumping along on the basement, but is it really a turn around at this stage? >> well, today's numbers are just good across the board. as greg gibbs said, not only did we add jobs, but the work week expanded and incomes expanded. and i think it shows that the president's economic policies are working. we've now had 31 straight months of private sector job growth, that's 5.2 million jobs. and we're moving in the right direction. and changing course now to go back to the policies that got us into this mess in the first place doesn't make any sense at all. >> you've been through a lot of presidential debates, you've watched them in the past, you were involved with the hillary clinton campaign last time around and this time, of course, with president obama. let's talk about the president obama who showed up. who was that man w
? why then put in this conspiracy somehow that the books were cooked? if the obama administration cooked the books, certainly the bush administration would have done so in those terrible years when the economy turned, or if someone in the administration has that kind of power. >> yeah. i actually agree 100% with mr. harwood and with tony whose tweet you quoted. you don't have to attack the integrity of the number to attack the substance of the numbers. 114,000 new jobs is nothing to celebrate. it takes 150,000 new jobs every month to absorb new work into the work force. we have 3.4 college graduates this year that need to find jobs and need 150,000 jobs to stosh them and the other people entering the work force. back in 2004 barack obama attacked president bush for a jobs report where 300,000 jobs were created, three times today's jobs. we're celebrating this today, and i think it's unwise. it shows that the expectations are much lower. we have a much lower bar to define success, and i don't think that's good for anyone. i don't think that's good for the american economy or any one of us

. and what a second term obama administration would look like. and what it would do for middle class americans all over this country. i think we achieved that. i think what we didn't expect is for that mitt romney to show up. i know mitt romney is an aggressive debater, a great debater, in his own words. was one of the things he used as a credential to becoming the republican nominee. we didn't expect him to be aggressively dishonest last night. >> was the president taken by the number of lies? >> well, you know, i think that, you know, today looking back at last night, you saw what the president did on the stump today. called mitt romney out for what he did last night. not just about his $5 trillion tax cut but a number of other things. and, you know, we'll continue doing that. as i was listening to your piece coming into me, and you talked about our ad. we went on the air today. we're going to continue doing it pointing out all the things mitt romney said last night that are basically not true. it's almost as if he forgot what the last six years of running for president meant. >> y
the obama administration -- >> the president said he'd cut the deficit in half. unfortunately, he doubled it. trillion-dollar deficits for the last four years. >> when romney accuses the president of doubling a deficit, he's stretching the truth a bit. obama inherited a $1.2 trillion deficit when he came into office. you in the president increased that to $1.4 trillion deficit, but the deficits have stayed just under that. they've stayed very high, but they've been just under that for the next couple of years. he hasn't doubled it. >> reporter: these were just a few of the misleading claims flagged by fact check. and they may have found sounded familiar. >> as facts checkers, we've heard these claims over and over again. there wasn't a whole lot new in last night's debate. >> reporter: don't be surprised when you hear similar claims in the remaining debates. one topic that will surely come up again, the alleged $5 trillion tax cut in governor romney's plan. it's important to note there is no $5 trillion estimate. a nonpartisan tax policy center only forecast cuts for one year under romney's
talked about cutting tacks for the middle class. obviously the obama administration takes issue with it and says it isn't true. do you think this could be enough, if mitt romney could make the case for him to win the election? >> i think it's a very important point. remember why he wants to have the tax reform he wants. it's to make sure that the united states grows better than we've seen in the past four years. and what mr. romney is trying to say is, look, we have all these people out of work. we have all these people with jobs whose incomes are not growing. let's lower rates, broaden the base, be respectful of the middle class and the deficit by but have a better tax policy in place. it's good positions for him. the president can't even get the first step right. instead of lowering rates and broadening the base, he is insisting on raising taxes. that's a bit of a tough sell right now. it was the same president who, in 2010, said we can't afford to raise taxes on anyone. the economy is too weak. we're growing faster then than we are now. >> how big an issue could it be for dem
